The key to limiting the number of meetings to a reasonable amount is knowing when to say no. Several years ago we created an e-learning training video which helped managers and staff recognise whether a meeting was absolutely necessary or not. E-learning videos are highly effective because they feature animated videos and gamification users can interact with. The effectiveness of using eLearning content supports employees overwhelmed by meeting requests because they are engaging, memorable and prompt people to determine whether a meeting is absolutely necessary before organising it. Let’s take a look at some examples.
Since teams have been deployed remotely, researchers found that people are having 13% more meetings. More emails are being sent also and the interruptions are causing workdays to become 8.2% longer. Consequently, managers are looking to find solutions to reduce the number of meetings and prevent zoom fatigue. An effective way of doing this is to train your staff about meeting relevancy using animated and interactive e-learning content.
